Apparently an optimist, this Albany resident seems to count on the power of "please" to safeguard the roses along the sidewalk. Let's hope it works.
On a short tandem ride Sunday, we spotted the sign along the east side of Geary Street in the Willamette neighborhood. We didn't see any flower thieves while we were about, but then again you don't expect to see any while the sun is up.
But if the thievery occurs at night, would thieves see the sign? Again, let us hope so. And let them act accordingly. After all, the sign said "please." (hh)
